Integrated care delivery coordinates physical, behavioral, and social health--advancing comprehensive patient-centered care for the most complex populations. This event will explore how Medicaid, Medicare and Duals payers are taking a whole person approach to improving health outcomes, quality, and cost-effectiveness with care that meets the needs of high-risk, high-cost beneficiaries.

With the goal of providing seamless and continuous care throughout the healthcare journey, the event will look at the various care models, including value-based care, being used to support complex patients throughout the continuum. It will explore how leading payers are leveraging data to inform interventions and deliver targeted care to those who need it most, leveraging remote and home based care to facilitate the integration of care, embedding behavioral health into primary care settings, ensuring cultural competency in care delivery, and addressing SDoH as part of the care delivery framework.
Specifically, it will address these critical issues:


  • Advancing Value Based Care: Accelerating Transition in Healthcare Delivery and Payment Methods via Risk Based Contracts
